We suggest that international travelers consider dates during the low season to obtain the best hotel rates and encounter fewer crowds:

- Holidays in Colombia are FIXED: They are the same calendar day, each year. For example: July 20 is Colombia's Independence from Spain, Christmas Day is December 25, and New Years Day is Jan. 1.
- Mobile Emiliani Law: these holidays are moved to the next Monday to enhance free time. For Example: Columbus Day October 12th. falls on Sunday, so the next day, Monday the 13th. is a no work day.
